Here is the 1950 Cohisca coming in on the
CHS Express. After a long journey over
many miles of track, through innumerable
tunnels, it comes to blow a merry "TOOT"
and to rumble down the rails of time.
DEDICATED TO THE ENGINEER
We have lots to thank him for. He has done all he could to keep our class on the
right track for the four years we have ridden on the Goldsboro High School Express.
He's a great guy; he's been a real friend ever since we first knew him. It is because of
these things that we affectionately dedicate the 1950 Gohisca to Mr. C. W. Twiford,
The conductors of the '50 G.H.S. Express hope you will enjoy your ride on our
train from the time you board the engine 'til you step off the caboose.
To the Flagmen, Grease Monkeys, Porters, Ticket Sellers, Brake-men, and the
general repairmen who have no definite title and who did the indefinite but necessary
things, "Thank you" for a swell job.
Our appreciation goes to the Firewoman, Mrs. William Craven, who has given us
the steam to forge ahead.

Now I lay' me down to sleep,
My diploma I do seek,
And if the wrong chemicals I should mix,
I would be in a terrible fix.
Take care of Miss Grant and English IV,
May they rest in peace forever more —
Forgive me when I fail to do,
My French assignment that's overdue,
And by tomorrow may I know,
All my lines for Mr. B's show.
Help me through this night to rest,
So again tomorrow I may do my best.

THESE FOLKS HISSED THE Tit UN
Martha Ann Rose
Peggy Ann Britt
G. F. Seymour
( In less than two thousand words.)
When wonders cease, so will the world!
Statistics show that the chance one has of being hit by an errant billiard ball are one in 832,459
shots. Because of this, I felt comfortably safe when I sallied forth into "Uncle" Walter's Academy of
Finer Arts last Monday, but as of now, I am a confirmed believer in the old saying about there being
three kinds of lies — lies, lies, and statistics.
"Curse the luck!" I thought when I was comfortably enthroned in said Academy and looked up to
see a spherical object sailing through the atmosphere with but one destination apparent. That destina-
tion was apparently the space between my eyes for it .is here that said round object socked me.
The question has been asked often about what an individual thinks when he knows that danger is
about to fall upon him and now when ever that question is asked of me, I feel sure that I can answer it.
When I first observed the ball coming at me at a tremendous rate of speed, my first thought was of my
financial security. You see, I'm entirely dependent upon the "chubs" who frequent the Academy of
Finer Arts for my financial well-being and when I was about to get socked with an eight ball, I felt that
I had good reason to get worried.
The long fall to the butt (cigarette) strewn floor seemed as if it would never end, but when it did, I
could feel no pain what so ever. I was kind of disappointed — I didn't even get a good reassuring tap.
After I thought that I had occupied the floor long enough and had had time to get up a good crowd
to sympathize with me, I opened my eyes fully expecting to be gazing into the comforting face of Lonnie,
but when my eyes opened it was not the "Ho, Duz!" which greeted me. Instead, it was the well fed,
life of ease look that some how manages to find a place on every cop's face. I thought immediately of
"Cowboy" but I could find no motorcycle about, so I deduced that it wasn't said individual.
Upon straining my blue eyes a little more, I found that it was W. D. Gurley, Junior. Dear old Dub
— but why the cop's uniform? Maybe it was because my eyes just felt blue. They felt like one blew one
way and the other one blew the other way, but I was convinced that it was Dub. He helped me to my
feet with the aid of his ever present night stick and explained to me that he had succeeded his daddy
on the police force. He wanted to know where I had been and I told him that I had been nowhere but
since we were so balled up, he should take the day off and get me straight. He agreed and proceeded to
call it a day.
After talking with W. D. a while, I found out that he had worked his way up the force until he
reached lieutenant but he was busted when they found out that he spent most of his time swiping apples
from David Crawford's fruit stand. After hearing his life story, we switched on the radio and listened to
another stirring episode of "Adaline, the Misled Majorette," produced and directed by Florence Bowden
who made comments on the side for the benefit of listeners who may not know the story about
After talking with W. D. for a while, I bade him farewell and continued my way down the misty
street in search of an English institution where I might practice my art of being able to put forward,
back, right, and other various and sundry kinds of English on a cue ball. I walked a long time down the
main drag before I caught a ride with a little fellow in a big moving van. The fellow driving, whose
name was Walter, said that his company could handle "All Loads on all Roads." It seemed to me that he
made a pretty big jump from no load at all to all loads.
At last I found an Academy and upon venturing forth I found news that makes one think of home.
All the talk that I could hear was of the coming struggle between Leslie Langston and Owen Ginn for
the national nine-ball championship. It seems that Ginn had been challenged by Junior Hallow, "The
Billiard Baron of the Bowery," for the world's championship but before the match could be played, Langs-
ton had to get something straight between himself and Ginn.
About the fifth game of French that I played was with a real dusty fellow named Dameron who had
just lost his job as manager of the Rose Plantation out in New Hope. Dameron was pretty broken up
about the whole affair and was taking it pretty hard before he could be cheered up by Lib Smith who
ran a combination seed and fertilizer store just down the street.
After he settled down a bit, Dameron told me that Hugh Shine, who ran a dairy after he got out
of college, had had to retire from the business because he kept his cows in a too contented condition.
Shine always was a good man with the bull.
After my conversation with Dameron, I picked up a tattered and torn issue of "The Duplin Bi-
Weekly Times" and began to while my time away while waiting for another chub. The first article that
struck my eye was that Ashton Griffin, alias "Gashie" and other assorted and miscellaneous titles had
just been arrested for blowing up a bridge. The article, written by Ruth Forehand, who doubles as presi-
dent of the Business and Professional Women's Club, stated that jealousy was the motive for the crime.
It seems that Engineer Paul Pittman wanted the bridge made of brick and when Jack B-O-rden was
awarded the contract, Griffin blew it up.
Gene Roberts' "Rambling in Rural Duplin" column, which occupied a prominent position on page
one, stated, among other things, that G. F. Seymour, prominent Rosewood farmer, had just succeeded
Carlie Hinnant as the professor of agriculture at Everette Case University, formerly known as N. C. State.
In the theatrical news on the back page, I found that Skippy Albert's first Broadway production,
"Mumbles Speaks Again," starring Worth Potter as Mumbles,- had just been proclaimed a success after
its 87th week. Before going to New York, both Albert and Potter had been connected with the Rose-
wood faculty. Albert's job of drama director and Potter's position as football coach were incorporated
into one job and given to Kenneth Allen.
The seats in the billiard parlor were becoming a little hard, so I decided that I would take in a
movie to soothe my aching bones. The film I saw was not a "talkie" but who needs words with the
picture that was on? The picture was "The Girl from the Community Building Pool," starring Martha
Rose. Need I say more? incidently, throughout the picture, Martha chewed chewing gum given to her
by Jimmy Shumate who has succeeded P. K. Wrigley as the "chewing gum champion of the world."
When I came out of the movie, I felt something snake through the air, grasp my hand and com-
mence to give it the most vigorous shaking it has received in a long time. When I recovered my breath,
I found that I was gazing into the face of none other than Anne Butler. After a long sales talk on the
advantages of living in New Hope, Anne told me that she had just been named as the Executive Secre-
tary of New Hope's Chamber of Commerce.
When Anne stopped talking, I heard a long blast from a trumpet held to the lips of Harry James
Percise to announce that the Mitchell boys, Bob and Eddie, the cream of the salesman crop, had just
come to town on their nation wide sale of hand lotion. I stopped to talk with them for a while before
thumbing a ride with Bobby Darden who was just starting out on his sandwich route.
Bobby's first stop was the Opera Shop where Janet Cook was still occupying the seat left to her by
Ethel Parks and she told me that Bud Davis and' Pot Smith were mopping up with their respective turkey
farms. One of Pot's more steady customers is Janice Whaley who is trying to figure out a satisfactory
feeding plan for her nine children.
After leaving Janet we started out on the route which has been expanded to include both Pikeville
and Fremont. Bobby also has the contract for feeding the workmen who are redecorating the home of
Donald and Peggy Percise. The redecorating work is under the direction of Peggy Britt who has just
opened a branch office of interior decorating and other things in London.
Bobby's always safe driving habits were still with him as we hit the open highway and on the fifth
curve, we sailed into the middle of a rosebush. While I was breathing in the aroma of the beautiful
roses, I felt everything go black and when I woke up, I was back on the butt (cigarette) strewn floor
of "Uncle" Walter's with Bobby Watson blowing his breath in my face in an attempt to revive me. I
followed a long habit I've had and offered him a piece of chewing gum before I got to my feet.
When I was once more comfortably enthroned on one of the seats which line the wall, I thought
of telling my story to the group about me, but I decided that I would wait and let you be the first to
hear about it.

TIMETABLE OF OLE' "50"
"Four long years have slipped right by
Since first we entered Goldsboro High
We were physically small and mentally weak,
Our future in high school, we were out to seek!"
The train pulled into the station at G.H.S. on September 18th, 1946, to let off 186 passengers, all of whom were to make up
the freshman class and become a part of the student body of Goldsboro High School. Perhaps it was the sudden jerk of the
stopping train that left us all shaking like leaves, but scared cr not, this was it!!!
There was not a big crowd to meet us at the station that day, no, just 172 seniors, 142 juniors and 133 sophomores, which
together made 447 pairs of eyes staring us straight in the face. If ever we needed leaders it was now, so we lost no time in
electing Peggy Ann Britt to serve as our first president. Along with her we chose Paul Pittman, vice-president; Barbara Rus-
sell, secretary; Jack Borden, treasurer; Peggy Malpass and Jimmy Shumate, cheerleaders, and Adaline Vann, parliamentarian.
Mrs. B. W. Cox and Mrs. Britt Davis Griffin were our advisors. After receiving our inherited colors, lavender and white we
choose to go along with it the iris as our class flower. Before the end of the year we had also adopted a class song and
We managed to come out of Freshman Week alive only to find that we had 31c in the treasury and owed exactly 80c.
To remedy this we voted unanimously that it might be wise to sponsor a "Laurel and Hardy" movie. Having solved our finan-
cial problem, we settled down to work and as a result led the Honor Roll several quarters.
Our first social affair took place the latter part of April, when we gave a most enjoyable spring dance.
The results of the election for the next year were: President, Gene Roberts; Vice-President, Kenneth Allen; Secretary,
Alyene Rollins; Treasurer, Bud Wallace, Cheerleaders, Julia Manly and Jimmy Thomas; and Parliamentarian, Eddie Mitchell.
Our advisors were to be Miss Ina Mixon and Miss Geraldine Jones.
For the first time since our arrival we breathed a sigh of relief and murmured "Whew! one down and three to go."
"Silly Sophomore" was now our name.
And we were quite the stuff,
Yet, we trembled at the sight
Of those seniors, big and rough."
During the summer we could hardly wait to return to school and get busy on our most exciting event of all — Yep, we were
in charge of Freshman Week and it did our hearts good to see those "Green Freshmen" suffer as we once had.
As usual we were confronted with the money problem and so decided to sponsor a Stationery Drive.
It was a success and we were again able to get out of the dumps.
In keeping with the school's customs we presented the Easter program that year.
Our thoughts then turned to the social world and we shall never forget that wonderful "S.O.S." Social or the picnic at
Before leaving for our much needed vacation there was only one thing we needed to do — and that was to elect officers for
our junior year. Jack Borden stepped into the limelight as president assisted by Barbara Anderson, vice-president; Peggy Pitt-
man, secretary; Jimmy Shumate, treasurer; Barbara Harrell and Walter Culberth, cheerleaders; and Miss Eleanor Simpson and
Miss Sara Alexander were to be our advisors.
Again we wiped our brows with relief — only this time we were half way.
"Our worries were over,
We were looking for fun,
As big upperclassmen
We could get anything done."
For years it had been the custom of the Junior class to sponsor the Curtis Magazine Drive but this year, in order to pur-
chase new drapes for the auditorium, the drive was successfully turned into a school wide project.
Realizing ahead that money would be needed for the Junior-Senior we sponsored a Christmas Dance, thus raising our
treasurer's report considerably.
In collaboration with the Goldmasquers, we gave the long remembered class play, "The Willow and I." This being the
highlight of Junior Week.
Then came the day of all days when we ordered our rings.
Our hearts swell with pride when we recall the "Swankiest" Junior-Senior ever to be given. How could we ever forget,
"Club Fantasia" in blinking neon lights or the theme "Musical Fantica." Yes, that Junior-Senior was quite an affair.
We elected Bobby Watson as our last president, Janet Cook, vice-president; Betty Barbee, secretary; Carlie Hinnant,
treasurer; and Lib Smith and Bobby Darden, cheerleaders. Miss Agnes Rudisill was our advisor.
"Our days in high school were almost done,
Though friends and tasks we all had won —
Four happy years we had spent with you,
So to you G.H.S. we'll always be true."
As seniors our first goal was to edit a Gohisca that would top any other annual published before. Of course, it took lots of
time and work, but it was worth it when we thought of the precious memories it would hold for us. After the annual had gone
to press we turned to the dramatic side of life and gave our Senior class play, "John Loves Mary." A number of senior activi-
ties followed this, the greatest of course being the finale — Graduation. And as we walked across the finish line that night in
June we suddenly realized that this was by no means the end, but merely the beginning of a new and different life — Yes, we
were just another step nearer our goal.
"Without further words we bid you farewell,
And may good fortune come to you all,
Till again someday we'll meet once more
Inside the Golden Wall."

THE WILLOW AND
Two sisters, young in 1900, are in love then with
the same tall young man. One of the sisters is frail
and gentle; the other robust and assertive and used
to getting what she wants with no struggle to speak
of. But it is the gentle Marsha that young Robin
Todd loves and is about to marry — and never marries
because Bessie, the more- violent sister, tries to kill
herself, and the other, finding her with a revolver
and wrestling with her for it, is shocked out of
reality when the gun is fired. Her mind comes back
from the violence, and for forty years Marsha lives
in her clock-stopped mind on her summer wedding
day. And then, in the violence of a summer storm,
she awakens to find herself old and the whole

A match, between Princess Alexandra and Prince
Albert seems indifferent. Following the principle
that love inspires further love, a mild flirtation be-
tween Alexandra and Agi, the family tutor, is per-
mitted. It has the desired results and more, for
Albert sees her as if for the first time, but Agi
deeply loves her, and when Alexandra sees how sin-
cere he is and how much he is hurt by learning the
truth she in turn loves him. Obedient to her destiny
and the wishes of her mother, Alexandra parts with
Agi and marries Albert.

There came to a lonely tavern on a wild stormy
night a mysterious vagabond, a woman, and the
State Governor and his family who have been held
up a short distance away. Several persons are sus-
pected of the crime and the mysterious vagabond
takes infinite delight in observing developments as
they take place about him. When the suspense
reached an almost unbearable climax the vagabond
is at last located by the keepers of a nearby Sani-
torium and it was learned that he, the madman, has
been responsible for the vastly amusing and com-
plicated series of misunderstandings.

During the war Joe Keller and Hubert Deever ran
a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever
was sent to prison because the firm turned out de-
fective parts, causing the death of many men. Keller
went free and made a lot of money. The love affair
of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of
George Deever returned from the war to find his
father in prison and his father's partner free, are all
set in a structure of almost unbearable power.

When the score stands against
me, and there seems little chance
to win, when there is a whole half
to play, and I am hot and tired and
sick at heart, then 1 pray, Divine
Comrade, for strength to play the
game. It is easy enough to play
when I am winning, when I feel
fresh and there are no odds against
me; but when things are going
wrong, and I am tempted to cheat,
to gamble, or to quit, then I need
I want to take life as a game and
play it fair and hard. To do this, I
need some strong leader, so I pray
that Thou will always be with me.
When I am cowardly, or tired, or
baffled, give me the sense that
Thou art by my side, telling me
how to plan my way and giving me
the courage to keep on. Be with
me in the contest of today and all
through life's course. Amen.
